Honda Exhibits World Premiere of New Concept Model “NM4”
TOKYO, Japan, March 21, 2014 – Honda held its press conference at the 30th Osaka
Motorcycle Show 2014 today and unveiled the world premiere of two types of its new
production model “NM4” as an exhibition model (planned for production).
The NM4 was developed under the keywords of “the Neo-futuristic” and “COOL,” pursuing
new, unique styling.
This NM4 was designed to realize two points; the design concept “the Front Massive Styling”
and “the cockpit position” focusing on the sense of unity with the rider, that the rider can
smoothly get onto the vehicle. The low-setup cockpit position and adjustable backrest provide
an enjoyable new riding feel. The instrument panel was designed to provide clear readability
and the fun riding, as if the rider was experiencing part of a movie scene.
LED lamps are used on the headlight of the powerful-looking front fairing, the tail lamp and
the turn signals. In addition, the utility boxes are set up on the right and left sides of the front
fairing for small articles.
Two NM4 types were unveiled at the motorcycle show; the simply-configured “NM4-01”
which emphasizes its wide, dynamic rear tire and attractive low silhouette, and the “NM4-02”
which emanates a unique presence and features a prominent rear design (containing utility
boxes on each side of the rear body)
The NM4 will also be exhibited at the 41st Tokyo Motorcycle Show from Friday, March 28 to
Sunday, March 30 at Tokyo Big Sight.
